About Us

 

The Prince of Wales’s Corporate Leaders Group (CLG) brings together European business leaders to accelerate progress towards a low carbon, sustainable economy.

Through exchange of ideas, experience, and a dialogue with policymakers, the CLG facilitates solutions that support a resilient and prosperous future.

 

Our goal


CLG members are committed to creating business models that both address their climate impact and build resilience to the ever-increasing effects of climate change. They seek to share experiences with policymakers and business to promote ambitious and effective outcomes which:

  • ensure cumulative global carbon emissions do not exceed one trillion tonnes
  • help achieve the goal of net-zero emissions well before 2100
  • limit global temperature rise to well below 2°C
  • build an economy that delivers the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

 

Who we are


CLG members are leaders from a range of industries including retail and consumer goods, transport and infrastructure, finance, and power generation. Together, we have headquarters across the EU and a footprint extending far beyond Europe.

With a wealth of experience, and millions of customers, employees and suppliers between us, CLG members’ collective perspective is informed by our continued commercial success, and our ability to innovate, adapt and thrive in a changing economic climate.

CLG members are committed to playing a leadership role in securing a smooth, equitable and positive transition to a sustainable economy. This means both changing our businesses, and advocating for action in the wider economic and political context. Through high-level exchange, quality research, and new partnerships, the CLG informs public policy and leads the wider business community by example.

The CLG is convened by the University of Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership (CISL) under its Royal Founding Patron, His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales. CISL is not a member of the CLG but provides the secretariat. Decisions of the CLG do not represent the policies or positions of CISL or of the wider University of Cambridge.
